I just tried upgrading from 4.3 beta2 to 4.3rc via
1click install… but i get endless dependency problems… if I chose to ignore some dependencies for the upgrade it won’t let me go ahead and upgrade for some reason… and the only other thing i can do is downgrade packages which would defeat the purpose of upgrading to kde 4.3rc in the first place…
has anybody else successfully upgraded from kde 4.3beta2 to kde 4.3 rc?
and how did you go about it?
Success - Yes.
But you really need to know what you are doing. Oneclick is not the way to go.
Did you disable your 4.2 repo’s?
You better post your repos so we can have a look:
zypper lr --details
nah i havn’t… I’ve used 1click before for upgrading kde and it worked fine… but ahwell…
heres my repos

so I guess i just disable the kde 4 repo… add the new one… and then zypper dup??? correct me if im wrong
Apart from having BIG!! mess in your repos i am not surprised you have problems upgrading and i am surprised that your system still works;)
Remove the UNSTABLE repositories!!
Disable the videolan repo!!
Disable source, debug repo!!
And update unconditionally!!
Look at my zypper lr
| Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh
1 | KDE_Factory | KDE Factory | Yes | Yes
2 | KDE_Factory_Community | KDE Factory Community | Yes | Yes
3 | Mozilla | Mozilla | Yes | Yes

8 | repo-non-oss | NON-OSS | Yes | Yes
9 | repo-oss | OSS | Yes | Yes
10 | repo-update | UPDATE | Yes | Yes
Don’t count Mozilla repos and Fisiu as these are software specific. And i had NO problems at all!! Keep it clean in there!! If You won’t then don’t be surprised that something is not working right!!
Honestly, I don’t dissagree with Bender but it might be easier if you switch all OFF (Disable)
OSS (120 priority)
Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1
Now open Yast - Software Management - Filter by Repo
select the kde4 Factory
Do update all in this list unconditionally.
*Problem is there has been lots of package name changes from the kde4-prefix eg kde4-amaork
is now: amarok
So you actually have to delete kde4-amarok
N.B. If you filter by system and scroll thru and see RED packages, most of these will be what you are looking for (esp. kde4 packages)
If you then check the versions tab lower down and see no version radio buttons, just the installed package version. These are the ones you can delete.
Look at his mess caf and you’ll soon discover that he already has KDE 4 Factory Desktop repo also the UNSTABLE. Ehhhh, i see the need to make a HowTo for a 1-Click Install or incorporate some warning in 11.2 that adding too many repositories may make the system unstable
I know Bender. It’ll be a PITA to work thru even if I was sat in front of the Box, never mind try and negotiate someone thru it in a forum.:X
whats wrong wif my repos? Opensuse doesn’t have that many packages by default even with pacman enabled… i like to enable community repos so i can have all the software that I need.
anyways… i’ll disable the extras and add the new repo and upgrade. let ya know how i go.
i disabled all extra repos
did what you said…
and I still get the same dependency errors that I got when i tried the 1click install… ugh!
i would paste the list… but it is MASSIVE
basically asking me to either ignore depencencies or downgrade packages
Mate, the reason is because you were running the UNSTABLE repo. Most applications are not what they used to be (no kde4-app anymore). Digikam, gwenview, amarok, kontact, most stuff is called like that. When resolving dependency issues look at the version. It should be 4.2.95. So look what is the problem and install 4.2.95 versions.
hmmmm. i’ll have a play with it 2moro
cheers anyways, going to bed. lol.
Good strategy. On waking, think of each repo as a length of mental barbed wire. The more you have, the more difficult it is to cross over to the new system.
Oh, BTW, thanks for the entertainment. Enjoy…
